What type of business coach do you want?
If you’re a business owner who thinks you want to work with a business coach, it might be useful to first decide whether what you need is a coach or a consultant.
In other words, if you feel you need someone else’s subject matter expertise to diagnose what your business’ needs are, someone who’ll then prescribe what they think is the best solution as well as perhaps going on to implement their solution for you and then finally leaving you to pick up once they’ve left – then hire a consultant.
On the other hand, if you are of the view that you and your people know your business best, and that the support of a skilled 3rd party professional could bring an even greater focus to your priorities as well as drawing out of your potential, then look for a good business coach – but a genuine one with the right skills and attitude.

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
